Hardcover Price: $16.99

Meet Teddy, a thoughtful stuffed brown bear with "a furry round brown head with bright button eyes, a short brown snout and little brown ears. He had no neck and stubby arms, a round brown belly, and he had lost his legs a long time ago." No one pays the slightest attention to his handicap. It is just part of who he is.

Teddy lives with Umpah, a soft gray elephant with a talent for making muffins. Sid, who lives nearby, is a stuffed, striped snake with a love of Umpah's muffins. Peng the penguin, who lives in a cave up the hill, is made of wood and is antisocial. Prinny, a young and silly blue stuffed pig, lives with protective Zia, a pig who is totally pink in her totally pink house. Teddy and his friends are happy in their peaceful little world. Until the new toys arrive.

Voigt delivers a read-aloud that is as timely as it is delightful.
